Awakening Wood[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Important subject, and doesn't have much left to complete. — {EspyoT} 13:05, 1 December 2018 (EST)
  2. This article is completely ready to be featured, though given it's the last Pikmin 2 area article that hasn't been featured, it might be best to wait a while. — Soprano(talk) 01:14, May 30, 2021 (EDT)

Captain Olimar[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) This article may have been rejected 13 years ago, but now it's a well-written article with good-quality information. Given the importance of Olimar to the series, it would be nice to finally feature this article. — Soprano (formerly Botanist)(talk) 05:26, May 9, 2021 (EDT)

Comments[edit]

  • It turns out that this article was actually featured on the Pikmin Wikia during the split period, but I guess that doesn't count, and it can still be featured. Also, due to this article's importance, it should probably be the featured article when the Pikmin mobile app releases (probably in October-November; I think Cupid's Grenade should be featured in August-September). — Soprano(talk) 21:37, July 17, 2021 (EDT)
    • Update: We featured Pikmin Short Movies for this time period instead because it was looking like the app would release later, but it turns out it did release in this time, plus we missed the chance to have Captain Olimar be the featured article for Pikmin's 20th anniversary. Oh well; we've missed it now. The article's still good though, so it's ready to feature whenever. — Soprano(talk) 04:58, October 31, 2021 (EDT)
  • Related to the above comments: Pikmin 4 is coming up sometime (hopefully) soon, so perhaps we could save this article for after that game's release (and if Olimar ends up being a major part of the game)? Midnight blue (talk) 19:57, January 24, 2023 (EST)
    • Definitely; this article needs to wait for now. — Soprano(talk) 20:02, January 24, 2023 (EST)

Saved game selection menu[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) The most complete menu article, with a fascinating section on the orb color mechanic in Pikmin 2. — Soprano(talk) 04:39, May 16, 2021 (EDT)
  2. {EspyoT} 15:09, May 17, 2021 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

  1. I'm changing my support of this one to opposition, as the saved game selection menu is just not notable enough to be featured. It has an interesting section, but the article as a whole is just not very interesting. The only menus notable enough to be featured are probably the area selection menu and title screen. — Soprano(talk) 00:15, October 7, 2021 (EDT)
  2. Yeah, guess so. — {EspyoT} 15:45, October 9, 2021 (EDT)
  3. This seems like an awfully specific and niche thing to have as a featured article. Of all the things I could think to showcase, a screen you typically look at for just a couple seconds at a time isn't one of them. Midnight blue (talk) 20:15, January 24, 2023 (EST)

Comments[edit]

Area selection menu[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) The area selection menu is the most distinctive menu of the Pikmin series, and would be the best menu article to feature to show Pikipedia's coverage of menus. — Soprano(talk) 01:40, June 6, 2021 (EDT)

  • Just noting that this probably shouldn't be featured until we get the hint images from the game files, and replace the temporary screenshots with those. (I forgot about that when nominating the article.) — Soprano(talk) 04:41, June 18, 2022 (EDT)

Breadbug[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Breadbugs are very popular enemies, and they have a great article about them too. — Soprano(talk) 00:15, October 7, 2021 (EDT)
  2. Huh, kinda weird that they weren't already. It's a good article, even outside of the Breadbug being a meme. — {EspyoT} 15:45, October 9, 2021 (EDT)
  3. This one might be worth featuring just as a humorous nod to the memes, haha. In all seriousness, the Breadbug seems to be one of the more famous enemies, so I think it could work as a feature. Midnight blue (talk) 20:13, January 24, 2023 (EST)

Musings of a Sidekick[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) It's a small page, and it's not important, but it could be a fun little page to feature that I doubt many people know about. Burrhead2 (talk) 10:25, September 18, 2022 (EDT)
  2. It's so small and simple but...I really can't say no. — {EspyoT} 11:05, September 18, 2022 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

  1. In my opinion this article is too basic to be a featured article. Most of it is just a very long quote, with the only Pikipedia-written section being the introduction. So while featuring this would raise awareness of this little-known piece of media, it doesn't show the best of what the wiki has to offer. — Soprano(talk) 18:22, September 18, 2022 (EDT)

Comments[edit]

  • I'm honestly torn on this one. While I love the Musings of a Sidekick thing and would love to raise awareness of this somewhat famous yet still obscure promo content, I'm not really sure if smaller articles are the best candidates for showcasing on the front page of the wiki. If we're really that concerned about our featured articles needing to represent the size and quality of wiki articles in general, then this is probably not the one to use. Midnight blue (talk) 20:07, January 24, 2023 (EST)

Nectar[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) A good article covering how an important mechanic works in different games. — Soprano(talk) 18:26, November 25, 2021 (EST)
  2. {EspyoT} 13:21, November 26, 2021 (EST)

Nectar egg[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) Article's not much, but it'll be pretty straight-forward once the tasks are done. It's a bit of an important subject, and the tidbits about the spawn chances can be interesting. Might be a good pick for when we have no better articles to feature. — {EspyoT} 19:06, November 8, 2019 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • Considering that nectar itself is a candidate for being featured and has gotten more attention on this page, would it be redundant to keep the eggs as a feature candidate? Or is there enough to just the eggs themselves that would still warrant them being a separate feature? Midnight blue (talk) 20:23, January 24, 2023 (EST)
    • Not at all; eggs and nectar are very different topics and there's different things to say about them. Eggs don't only produce nectar, and they're also found in specific places which means the article has a location list. The two articles shouldn't be featured close together, but they can absolutely both be featured. — Soprano(talk) 03:26, January 25, 2023 (EST)

Hocotate[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) This article is packed with details, and has 42 different sources. It's one of the best documentations of the interesting details seen in Pikmin's various logs, and is overall thoroughly written. — A pixel art of the Crystalline Crushblat by CrazyCow. CrazyCow November 30th, 2020
  2. Agreed, but like the TODO says, we need more references first. — {EspyoT} 13:30, December 2, 2020 (EST)

Secret Spot[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) It's about time we had another featured article about Hey! Pikmin, and this is a good candidate. It has thorough information on level design and also more technical aspects of the mechanic. — Soprano(talk) 01:40, June 6, 2021 (EDT)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • It still has some massive pending tasks. Leaving such a massive todo in a featured article would look ugly, and in particular, the tasks that need to be done are very important to the core of the subject. I don't think this should be featured yet. — {EspyoT} 13:15, June 7, 2021 (EDT)

Mushroom Valley[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) It's about time another Hey! Pikmin area article was featured after the first 2 in mid-2018. Unfortunately, there is not a single one that doesn't have at least 1 maintenance template. Of all of the articles, Mushroom Valley is the closest to being complete enough to be featured, and it's a pretty interesting level. — Soprano(talk) 00:15, October 7, 2021 (EDT)

Big Flower[edit]

  1. (Nominator:) It would be a good idea to have the next featured article be related to Pikmin Bloom. While no articles about the game are ready for that yet, some might be ready at the start of December, and this is a good candidate. — Soprano(talk) 16:19, November 12, 2021 (EST)
  2. This is one of the most notable mechanics in Bloom that seems to get a lot of attention in research, so I think it would be a good featured article representative of that game. Midnight blue (talk) 20:29, January 24, 2023 (EST)

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

  • Well, it's been a little over a year since this was first nominated, has it progressed any towards being ready to be featured? Or any Bloom related articles, for that matter? Midnight blue (talk) 20:29, January 24, 2023 (EST)
    • A lot of Bloom articles, including this one, would be ready for featuring if it were not for the fact that they need more images. Screenshots of Pikmin Bloom are hard to take due to the location information everywhere, and as a result most Bloom articles need their Gallery section expanded before they're ready to be featured. — Soprano(talk) 03:26, January 25, 2023 (EST)

  • At the moment, it's not quite ready to be featured, as there's some information we've found that still hasn't been documented. Plus, it's probably not a good idea to feature an article that could change significantly during the time it's featured due to the discovery of new information. This article was also featured on Template:News a few months ago. I absolutely think this article should be featured eventually, but we should wait a while first. — Soprano(talk) 20:02, January 24, 2023 (EST)
